Section 60 of the Equality Act 2010 makes it generally unlawful for you to be asked questions about your health or disability before you are offered a job. The Commission can take legal action and you may have a claim of disability discrimination if you are asked unlawful questions.
The legal interpretation of Section 60 can be found in our publication: Employment Statutory Code of Practice, at pages 126 to 131. Please see our website: www.equalityhumanrights.com. We also refer to it in our Equality Act 2010 guidance for workers: Your rights to equality at work: When you apply for a job (also available on the Commission's website)
